I didn't get a picture of the underneath of the truck but the original mounts are posts on the shock mount tube that goes across the back in between the frame rails. I am going to cut those off and use some plates to mount the new shocks. First step was to mock it up and make some bracket templates from cardboard.

Then trace them out on some 3/16" steel plate with the soap stone so I can cut them with the torch....

The cut away with the torch. My hand is wobbly so lines are kinda crooked but it works.

Hit it with a hammer and the new plates drop out...
